Minecraft is a sandbox game created by a Swedish gamer named Markus Alexej “Notch” Persson. It is a sandbox game that allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world.
At the age of 9 “Notch” programmed his first game on his fathers “commodore” computer. Minecraft was initially released on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version game. More updates progressed and the game was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011.
Minecraft uses Infdev (or Infinite Development) was the third phase in the development cycle of Minecraft and is only playable in single-player Survival mode. Infdev creates infinite terrain, which means landscapes are created from “blocks”. When your player reaches 1millon or more blocks in their travels, they get this weird biome thing. If you walk into the biome you fall into a void and eventually die. This is a bad thing of course. You lose all your items in your inventory. You’ll be placed back in your current spawn when you die.
Players can build their own worlds, build onto existing Minecraft words and then enter the world and try to stay alive. My gravatar is a BUDDER ORE (Gold Ore) block. There are things you can do in minecraft ranging from a vannela minecraft block to a modified minecraft block that people refer to as a “mod”.
It’s a highly popular game and great for kids and adults alike.
